Many people are apprehensive about traveling to another country if they’ve never traveled abroad before, especially if they are a woman.*Not that a guy can’t be just as apprehensive, just sayin’ 😉 And really, rightfully so. There are many different cultures out there, believing different things, doing different things and often times you just aren’t aware of a certain countries ‘ways of doing things and/or conducting themselves. Different cultures obviously can have vastly different belief systems. How women are treated for instance. Luckily, Costa Rica is a very chill country, PURA VIDA as they like to say, which means ‘Pure LIfe’. LIve and let live, treat people right and with respect, easy peezy really. But tht doesn’t mean bd things can’t ahppen and if you are traveling here, you need to take a few precautions just in case. Better to be safe than sorry as we like to say.

One of the things I like to say is, Costa Rica is SAFE but when bad things happen, it’s usually to a solo traveler. So what does that mean? Is it sae or isn’t it? Can women vacation in Cotsa Rica by themselves or not? Again, this video, ‘Traveling Alone in Costa Rica- SAFE?

OUTLINE of this video:
– Share your itinerary with friends and family.
-Paper copies, digital copies of important documents and electronics (pics). Upload digital copies to your email, laptop and even a cloud service. *Remember to copy your ‘stamped in’ page of your passport. **and if things do get stolen, a police report.
-Bring a whistle, mace and a fake wallet.
-Keep valuables at home like rings, jewelry etc.

Where BAD things could happen (harrasement, things stolen and worse….)
-bus stations-taxi stands-beaches at night-walking anywhere by yourself at night-clubs/bars-public buses where luggage, backpacks, valuables could be stolen-National Parks you should go with a group or at least another person.

-Trust your gut.
-‘NO.’ is a complete sentence.’
-Don’t get too drunk.
-Go to clubs/bars in a group if possible. Taxi from club to club.
-No eye contact and if you feel threatened, leave the area ASAP and find a lighted public place.

  3. I was there the week after you posted this! Such a lovely town and I checked out most of these stores. Best deal I ran across was in San Jose, a guy on the street downtown selling avocados 8/ $1.

    Glad you guys kept in touch, probably wouldn’t have noticed for a bit!! lol

    Love your video! I wish I had it before going, we didn’t hit the other store at all and I didn’t know about the discounts with your passport… could have saved some money since we mostly shopped at Mega Super!!

  7. I’m going to CR tomorrow! This was very cool to see the prices of goods in La Fortuna and give us an idea of what to expect.

  8. I miss Costa Rica so much!!! When I lived there my grocery store would always place the weirdestttt music….completely unedited 🤣🤣🤣

  9. I never knew that Costa Rica was more expensive. Thanks for showing where you shop and the prices. Because when we travel we do stay at place for a while and we do shop for food as we don’t eat all out every day. Good video!

  10. Wow! I couldn’t get over how inexpensive the meats, pasta and veggies were! We love farmers markets too! The USA is experiencing very high inflation, especially on food. A NY strip steak (good quality) is between $15-$22 a pound! Great video so happy you were aloud to film inside the stores! Very helpful tips! ~Cara 😊
